Well, what can I say???????
THANK YOU ALL very much for attending for what was for me THE BEST SW MEET WE HAVE HAD SO FAR!!!
I was very dubious about the meet yesterday and I thought it would only be a small contingent. How wrong was I?!!
25 Bikes. Yes, given the recent weather, the current Economic climate it was a joy to see so many turn up at Tescos and Big ups to Yoshikid and Gadge for Spreading the word and they alone brought 7 people along with them.
Weather wise, what can I say?
Perfect. Please spare a charitable thought whilst you hear my screams as another part of my being is extracted.
Another bonus was that the roads were not too bad (only a very few small pockets of crap on the road) in conditon but also in traffic density. For those of you that attended in April, it was quite slow going. Today was quite the opposite and I am sure all will have enjoyed the brisk pace in all 3 groups.
First of all, massive thanks to Martin and Big Thumpa for leading the other groups, I lifted a weight off my shoulders when you both agreed to help out
Thanks to Mike for being the official photographer of the day and look forward to seeing the pics
Anyone else who has pics, please post them up as I didn't take any this time
Thanks to Ooomidamon for Turning up and sharing lunch with us all. Next time turn up on
And more importantly, thank you to you all for contributing to the site. The rideout raised £72.50 which I have already sent via paypal to Ash (Spankme) to help keep running the site for us all. Cracking effort guys
It was also great to see some old hands of the site (Kitkat, Pete59 to name but a few) and equally as great to meet new riders who I hope will have come away from this rideout wanting to come back again.
Why not join the UK SW Owners meet social group on here and add your photos as well as on the thread. Unless anyone knows different, this is the sites longest running regular bike meet for SV owners, Ex SV owners and anybody else who cares to join us!
Roll on April 25th 2009, 9am Taunton (Or 8am for fatties at Tesco!)
